It’s ripping my heart out
thinking of you
wondering how you came to be so strong
We’re tearing your heart out
thinking of us
dancing thoughtlessly, doing you wrong
Our lives out of balance,
growth our only call,
never questioning what we’re growing into
Fitting into this culture
delighting in all the lives we undo
You’re slipping away now,
out of our grasp.
We’ve no idea what we’ve done
We can’t live without you,
It’s ripping my heart out
thinking of you
wondering how you came to be so strong
I’m tearing your heart out,
thinking of me
living thoughtlessly, doing you wrong
My life out of balance,
survival my call,
never questioning what I’m turning into.
my constant goal,
distressing in the lives I undo.
You’re slipping away now,
out of my grasp.
I’ve no idea what I’ve done.
I can’t live without you,
I feel so weak deep down inside
where I know you’re strong.
Paralyzed to inaction by shackles of culture.
When will I let go,
as I tell others to do?
When will I dive head-first into my future?
Staring into the abyss,
knowing time is short,
why not march into the squall?
I love you completely
yet I can expect nothing.
You, my goddess, hold all the cards.
You captured my heart
and you hold it still
even though it’s nothing but shards.~Guy McPherson, Nature Bats Last~
It is time to come out of the dark ages in what we call intelligence and consciously include the resources of the heart. Someday we will look back upon the dry years of education which included everything but what is most important, our hearts, our happiness, the way we connect with one another, with life and eternity. Princeton and Harvard wake up! Silicon valley and all corporate leaders are tuning in. Time to pass out the tools of heart intelligence. Time to save the Earth by investing in and developing inner gardens of silence, trust, humility, care, humor, courage, passion, play, and dignity. Heart intelligence is the paradigm that speaks to everyone’s hope and frustration. Just what is our IQ score in heart intelligence? Not nearly high enough!
In the school of life, in the not-too-distant future, next to all the breakthroughs in science, they will be teaching the benefits of random acts of kindness. History books will include on the same page of who fought what wars the stories of people who won the peace. In addition to building physical endurance, gym will include strengthening awareness with exercises in generosity, self acceptance, and acceptance of others. Heart science will document the rewards from a practice of compassion and simple peace. Skills in listening, understanding, forgiveness, patience, community service, and personal development will be normal education in a world that recognizes heart intelligence.
Different kinds of meditation will be taught as students discover for themselves there is much more to self then we what normally think of as our personality. The no self, higher self, unlimited self, and much more will be studied as we open to the resources within us of peace, consciousness, the mountain passes and lush valleys of greater awareness. Emotional and heart full wellness will be recognized as important parts of medicine and intelligent living.

How often have you seen good, fresh food go to waste — at your company, at a favorite restaurant or grocery store, at social events? Millions of pounds of food waste fill Marin County’s landfills each year. And yet more than 30,000 residents of Marin don’t have a secure food supply.
Our mission is to help end hunger and reduce food waste in Marin County.
We do this by picking up donations of extra fresh food from Marin organizations and delivering the food immediately to nonprofit programs that serve Marin’s most vulnerable populations. Our focus: the millions of meals missed every year by those residents, and all the components of those meals — especially proteins — needed for a healthy answer to hunger.
Does your organization ever have extra food that would ordinarily go to waste? Prepared food? Fruits and vegetables? Dairy or meats? Or are you in an organization that might like to receive food deliveries? Are you interested in being a volunteer food runner?
Organizations that donate extra food — such as caterers, grocery stores, schools, events, congregations, and restaurants — reduce waste, receive a tax deduction and are protected from liability by federal and state laws. Community food-service programs receive high-quality food donations matched with their programs’ needs. And, our volunteers make a difference in our community through in-person connections with community members. It’s a collaborative team of dedicated people connected across many organizations in our community. It’s food recovery with “the human touch.”
Modeled on a 27-year-old organization in San Francisco, Food Runners — which now rescues 15 tons of food each week — ExtraFood.org delivers a free, convenient, customized service to help end hunger and reduce waste in Marin County. Our goal, in partnership with many: Zero Hunger, Zero Waste by 2025.
For many people, it is absurd to believe that time is an illusion, for it appears to be reflected everywhere and appears to exist as a fundamental, inherent and unchangeable condition of this dimension. Thus we appear to be trapped within it and there seems no mechanism for transcending time.
It is very important for readers to understand what time is. In essence, it is nothing other than a mental construct created by the ego-mind to separate out perceptions and events into an order, so that the sensations arising from them can be assimilated and made sense of.
One can reflect deeply and find that space is simply a mental vacuum – a mental space – where mental projections can be inserted into. Because the sensations that the mind perceives are externalized, this mental space then appears to exist outside of oneself and have a distinct reality of its own. Belief in its inherent reality then creates the illusion of the 3rd dimensional spatial matrix. The illusion of space then gives rise to the notion of distance, which is nothing other than a mirroring of our own separation from Source.
This illusion was spawned so early in our formative years that we have come to forget there is any other way of perceiving reality. The transcendence of the illusion of distance (a concept created by the mind) results in the ability to bi-locate and teleport. As the energies from the Central Sun reach their zenith, this will then facilitate bodily teleportation and the subsequent Ascension as one is able to stand outside of the limitations of the 3D matrix of space-time.
As Israeli airstrikes continue pounding Gaza, the Algerian national football team has announced that they will be donating their entire World Cup prize fund to the people of Palestine.
The Palestinian flag was draped from the team bus during the team’s triumphant open-top bus tour of the capital, where they were received home as heroes after their amazing match against Germany in the 2014 World Cup.
According to quotes attributed to Algeria’s star striker Islam Slimani, the team will give up all of the estimated $9 million (£5.25 million) they received as valiant losers in the round of 16.
By Adam Withnall
First the Palestinian flag was draped from the team bus during the team’s triumphant open-top bus tour of the capital, now it has been claimed that the Algerian national football team are to donate their entire World Cup prize fund to the embattled people of Gaza.
Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who as an airman during World War II crashed into the Pacific, was listed as dead and then spent 47 days adrift in a life raft before being captured by the Japanese and enduring a harsh imprisonment, died on Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was 97.
Mr. Zamperini’s remarkable story of survival during the war gained new attention in 2010 with the publication of a vivid biography by Laura Hillenbrand, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.” It rose to No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list.
(only taking 38 yrs. to begin to clean up mass radiation spill.)
Workers are preparing to enter one of the most dangerous rooms on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation — the site of a 1976 blast that exposed a technician to a massive dose of radiation, which led to him being nicknamed the “Atomic Man.”
Harold McCluskey, then 64, was working in the room when a chemical reaction caused a glass glove box to explode. He was exposed to the highest dose of radiation from the chemical element americium ever recorded — 500 times the occupational standard.
Hanford, located in central Washington state, made plutonium for nuclear weapons for decades. The room was used to recover radioactive americium, a byproduct of plutonium.
Covered with blood, McCluskey was dragged from the room and put into an ambulance headed for the decontamination center. Because he was too hot to handle, he was removed by remote control and transported to a steel-and-concrete isolation tank.
….Hanford contains the nation’s greatest collection of nuclear waste, and for more than two decades has been engaged in the dangerous work of cleaning up that waste. The space now dubbed the McCluskey Room is located inside the closed Plutonium Finishing Plant and is scheduled for cleanup this summer.
“It’s been largely closed up since the accident,” Geoff Tyree, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Energy in Richland, said Wednesday. “It was restricted for the potential for airborne radiation contamination.”
Most of the citizens of the United States are now like the victims of an abusive relationship. People try frantically to avoid breaking laws because they don’t want to be penalized. They sacrifice their own well-being and happiness in order to avoid getting into trouble. I know that I personally get a little burst of adrenaline and say, “Oh crap!” every time a police car happens to be behind me, and I drive a little more carefully, signal a little bit sooner, and make certain my full stop lasts for a count of 5 Mississippis. Our right to defend ourselves with firearms is at risk, you can’t grow vegetables in your front yard in many places, and in some states, you aren’t even allowed to collect the gift of rain to water your garden in dry times. The vast quantity of ever-multiplying statutes are so plentiful even the most law-abiding citizen cannot get through a day without unwittingly breaking one.
If the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed? – James Madison, Federalist Papers 62
I’m pretty sure this is what our forefathers meant when they said “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
The 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolished slavery. This means that if you are a slave today, it’s either illegal, or you have voluntarily accepted your servitude.
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
You have a Constitutionally protected right to be free. If you aren’t free, then revolution is your duty. Part of the power that the government holds over people is the fact that they have stuff we need. So, the key to independence is not to need the stuff they have. When there is nothing that you require enough to submit, then bullying you becomes much more difficult. Here are some examples:
- If you reduce your consumeristic habits and lower your cost of living, you need less money.
- If you grow your own food, you will never be dependent on the government to help you to afford to buy food.
- If you don’t send your kids to school, and instead educate them at home, then you don’t need to get them vaccinated so they can attend school.
- If you don’t make much money, you don’t pay much in the way of taxes.
- If you are self-employed, you can’t be threatened with the loss of your job for non-compliance with *pick a ridiculous law.*
- If you shop locally, from farms and craftsmen, you don’t need the big box stores.
- If you have the ability and equipment to defend yourself, you don’t need to call 911.
This isn’t about guns blazing, militias mobilizing, and guerrilla warfare. It’s about small personal acts of independence.
The way you lead your life every single day can be a personal Declaration of Independence. By refusing to concede your natural rights, quietly and resolutely, you are performing an act of revolution. This only requires your consistent determination not to be infringed upon.
Personally, I withdraw my consent to be governed by the people in Washington DC that allegedly represent me. Because they don’t. They do not mirror my wishes and beliefs. They do not support my pursuit of personal freedom.

The Transportation Department warned Tuesday that by August, the federal government will begin delaying reimbursements to states for projects under way. These include the San Juan Road Interchange Project on Highway 101, where a dangerous confluence of local roads in northern Monterey County would be replaced with a single interchange and be converted to a freeway. It’s where Boxer joined Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty and Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, on Thursday to warn about the looming cutoff.
The cuts will average about 28 percent across the states, transportation officials said, and could deepen when the trust fund goes dry. A second deadline is coming Sept. 30, when the government’s authority to spend money on transportation programs expires.
Raising the gas tax was considered political suicide in both parties until last month, when Sens. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, and Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat, proposed boosting it by 12 cents a gallon over two years. That would generate $164 billion over the next decade, more than enough to shore up the highway fund.
Corker, a former mayor, said he was fed up with Congress letting roads and bridges decay. “I finally got to the point that I realized this cannot go on,” he said.
Kamen’s contribution has been in engineering his Stirling with the most high-performance materials. He started off using skilled welders to put together key parts of the engine made out of exotic alloys. More recently he’s figured out how make those pieces with even more precision using 3-D printing. Crane says a key element in Kamen design was the perfection of a little plastic membrane that looks like a condom. The Beacon, which weighs about 1,500 pounds and is the size of a washing machine, also includes a battery system, which can be integrated with other distributed generation systems like solar panels.So what’s Kamen’s vision for the future of these things? Well the one in Crane’s basement is far too big for the average American home, generating 10 continuous kilowatts, while most of us only draw about 2 kw. “I love bulldozers, but I wouldn’t put one in my garage,” quips Kamen.
Kamen believes that aside from mansion owners, the Beacon 10 is just right for businesses like laundries or restaurants that use a lot of hot water. With commercialization partner NRG Energy, he’s so far deployed roughly 20 of the machines.
Kamen expects to put them into production within 18 months. “Within two years I would expect high-end builders to be installing them.”
Is this the reason for the blowout, on the surface, payroll number? In June the BLS reports that the number of full-time jobs tumbled by 523K to 118.2 million while part-time jobs soared by 799K to over 28 million!
Looking at the breakdown of full and part-time jobs so far in 2014, we find that 926K full-time jobs were added to the US economy. The offset: 646K part-time jobs.
The number of Americans 16 and older who did not participate in the labor force climbed to a record high of 92,120,000 in June, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). This means that there were 92,120,000 Americans 16 and older who not only did not have a job, but did not actively seek one in the last four weeks.
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.” — The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863
(excellent overall history of bankers funding wars throughout our modern history.)
When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln’s efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.
“If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become endurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the world. The brains, and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” — The London Times responding to Lincoln’s decision to issue government Greenbacks to finance the Civil War, rather than agree to private banker’s loans at 30% interest.
“Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers… as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country… [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
“It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
“Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY.” — Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on.
Tsar Alexander II of Russia, who prevented France and Britain from invading the US during the civil war.Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks. Following Lincoln’s assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian military assistance to Lincoln, was subsequently the victim of multiple attempts on his life in 1866, 1879, and 1880, until his assassination in 1881.
You have to shake your head and almost laugh at this staged shutdown taking place and all the fear mongering going on. As we know, this is all done by the same sociopaths itching to pull off the next false flag to bump their program into the next gear. They apparently figure, why not prepare ahead of time for the new hyper-draconian measures they’ll mandate in the wake of some horrific new false flag event, or events?
Just look at this staged insanity. After all, anticipation magnifies the desired response, and how convenient to have the perpetrators already identified.
Fears terrorists will target planes with computer and human bombs
Heightened airport security after US terror warning could lead to summer of chaos for holidaymakers
Terrorists are plotting to use new stealth bombs in laptops and even humans to bring down a US-bound passenger plane, it is feared.
Airport security was increased across the UK, US and other countries amid fears al-Qaeda bomb experts have successfully designed a new explosive that can bypass current checks.
They are believed to be targeting the thousands of Western Jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq as would-be suicide bombers.
The threat, which originated from US intelligence, had an immediate impact at British airports where passengers were subjected to more stringent and rigorous security checks. Source
Note “western Jihadists”. While it’s true there are US/NATO/Mossad operatives posing as Islamic separatists, that they have suddenly multiplied into this sophisticated army poised to attack the west is a total, fabricated myth. For a purpose.

A rash of scripted summer thrillers cautions viewers to batten down the hatches. Watch out who you let nibble on your neck! Hold your loved ones tight before they vanish into thin air! And with all the deadly viruses at large, you better bathe in Purell!
A certain brand of TV drama has always kept its audience on high alert, at least as far back as “The Twilight Zone.” But these days, with agencies hacking your email, new diseases cropping up, ice caps melting and drones overhead, viewers are sitting ducks for the titillation of dramatized threats to offer welcome distraction from the real thing.
The message is clear: Danger lurks everywhere. On your airline flight, you might get something even worse than the food, resulting in a plane that lands at JFK full of passengers-turned-corpses.
That’s the big start of “The Strain,” premiering July 13. And things quickly worsen. Side effects for each victim on this FX series include rapid hair loss and a blood-sucking proboscis.

What is Disneyland? Is it a classic incarnation of Amerikana, or is it, nowadays at least, something more? Is it harmless, family friendly entertainment where the imagination is able to run free, or is there more at work inside the nation’s largest theme park/entertainment complex? Rumors and speculation have abounded for years of bizarre, inexplicable events associated with the parks as well as on the cruise ship lines, odd images embedded in the films, even to the Disney family being involved in “brainwashing” and “incest,” according to news reports. While most of these topics are supposedly laid to waste through and other debunkers, I propose there is more than meets the All-Seeing Eye at work.
A recent independent film has been released called Escape From Tommorow, in which the theme park is presented as a descent into madness, where an average family embarks on something akin to a bad acid trip, experiencing strange encounters, demonic forces, sexual enticement and self-destruction. The film utilizes classic mythological and fairy tale motifs, concomitant with classic Disney, as well as blending all of that with Freudianism, conspiracy memes and technocracy. Having received mixed reviews, I find it particularly relevant to the question of Disney itself, as the film is both a satire of what has become of Amerikana, as well as connecting with other recently released Disney films, such as Maleficent, another telling of the Sleeping Beauty like Escape From Tomorrow. While it may seem strange to say, it is not outside the realm of possibility from the occult perspective that multiple films are released around the same time, utilizing similar stories and themes with the intention of having a ritual effect. While this could be mere coincidence, there could also be more at work.

In 1984 – with Vice-President George Bush heading the National Narcotics Border Interdiction Service (NNBIS) – US officials ignored repeated chances to apprehend Pablo Escobar and Jorge Ochoa – kingpins of the Medellin Cartel.
The two were busy shipping cocaine through CIA agent John Hull’s Costa Rican ranch. They fled Colombia after ordering the assassination of Columbian Justice Minister Rodrigo Lara Bonilla and found refuge in CIA employee Noriega’s Panama, where that same year Nicaraguan contra godfather and Mossadegh coup master Vernon Walters was meeting secretly with Colombian President Julio Turbay to launch a top-secret US military base on the Colombian island of San Andres. The Caribbean island quickly became a major smuggling route for Colombian cartel cocaine.
With the passage of NAFTA, Mexico became the main transshipment point for Salinas-greased cocaine entering the US from Colombia. The first stage of the new Free Trade Agreement of the America’s is being carried out under the name Plan Colombia.
The Plan includes a large energy component, assisting the Four Horsemen (Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco & Royal Dutch/Shell) in the development of their extensive oil and petrochemical ventures in Colombia, where they hold a monopoly over the nation’s energy resources. In the 1980’s Shell bought the Columbian operations of Occidental Petroleum and Tenneco. Exxon Mobil owns large coal mines in the country, while BP Amoco recently discovered huge oilfields in Colombia. [
Plan Columbia also includes a military component, which flies under the banner of drug eradication, but which is actually a counterinsurgency campaign aimed at two powerful leftist guerrilla armies who have been fighting the Columbian narco-oligarchy for over 40 years.
The Colombian left began to go underground after the 1948 assassination of popular leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan at the Inter-American Conference in Bogota. They formed two guerrilla armies- FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia) and ELN (National Liberation Army).
Both have historically focused their attacks on Four Horsemen installations. Occidental pipelines were ruptured, Chevron Texaco executives kidnapped and BP Amoco installations destroyed. FARC – under the leadership of Manuel Marulanda – controls a huge chunk of territory in southwest Colombia near Popayan.
Eighty-percent of the $1.3 billion Plan Colombia package goes towards the purchase of arms and the hiring of military advisers. More than 400 US advisers now train 12,500 Columbian Special Forces at 34 US military bases in Colombia. High-tech espionage and radar devices have been sent to Colombia, along with 80 Huey and Blackhawk helicopter gunships.
The plan allows for chemical warfare against Colombian peasant farmers via widespread aerial spraying of glycerin-phosphate on coca crops. The spraying kills the livestock of poor peasant farmers, many of whom now suffer from previously unknown illnesses. 
While US propaganda paints the guerrillas as narcotraffickers, the reality is that Colombia’s oligarchy and military are firmly in the driver’s seat of the country’s cocaine business. US multinationals, international banks and the CIA are the facilitators.
If you remember the Oscar-winning film “Missing,” you know something about the life and death of reporter Charles Horman. He disappeared in Chile, days after Gen. Augusto Pinochet seized power in a 1973 coup. His body was found weeks later. Now, a Chilean court has ruled that American military intelligence services played a role in the deaths of Horman and another American, Frank Teruggi. Horman had been investigating links between the CIA and Chile’s military; Teruggi was a student in Santiago.
With the outcome of Afghanistan’s controversial presidential election still in doubt, and uncertainty over Afghan forces’ ability to stand against the Taliban after most US forces withdraw, it’s hard to say with certainty what the US-led war there has accomplished, or failed to accomplish.
“[T]he names and ‘contextually identifying information of involved children’ were withheld, including descriptions of the children, their clothing and their belongings”–Reuben F. Bradford, Commissioner, Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection
The New York Times, our nation’s newspaper of record (which records the “official history” of the United States), has reported that, with its “final report,” the criminal investigation of Sandy Hook by the State of Connecticut is over.
Remarkably, the report does not even include the names, the ages or the sex of the alleged victims of the shooting. There is no actual identification of any of the dead. Even the Danbury, CT, Newstimes found it unsatisfying.
And the 52 “autopsy photos” that accompany the report are redacted. The New York Times itself now appears to be responsible for a stunning display of journalistic incompetence on a matter of enormous public concern.
Anyone with the inclination can comb through hundreds of years of American crime reports and surely would not find another instance in the which the names, the ages or the sex of the victims is not given–with the exception of victims of sex crimes. Withholding this information is part of a pattern of deception and deceit that extends to the Clerk of Newtown making secret arrangements with the state legislature to avoid releasing death certificates to the public, attempts to withhold the 911 calls and gag orders that were imposed upon those responsible for tearing down the building itself:
In a letter accompanying the report, Reuben F. Bradford, the commissioner of the state’s Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, said the names and “contextually identifying information of involved children” were withheld, including descriptions of the children, their clothing and their belongings. “All visual images depicting the deceased have been withheld,” he added, “as well as written descriptions whose disclosure would be highly offensive to a reasonable person and would violate the constitutional rights of the families.”
The commissioner said that balancing the “often competing interests of government transparency and individual privacy has been difficult,” but the situation is completely absurd. This appears to be only the latest in a series of obscene measures being adopted to conceal from the public that the Sandy Hook “massacre” was in fact an elaborately staged hoax, which no one who takes a serious look at the evidence can reasonably deny because, in view of what we have now proven about the event, no alternative explanation is reasonable.
The basic principle that applies here is inference to the best explanation. Consider the totality of the evidence in this case. Is the evidence more probable on the hypothesis that Sandy Hook was a real event or that it was instead an exercise (or a “drill”), which was presented as though it had been a real event? The hypothesis that confers the highest probability on the evidence is the preferable, which, when the evidence has “settled down,” is acceptable as true in the tentative and fallible fashion of science. Here are the “top ten” reasons that support the conclusion that Sandy Hook was staged and not real, where no children or adults appear to have died there.
1. Proof of death has been suppressed
Twenty-eight people allegedly died: 27 children and adults, including Adam Lanza, at the school, and his mother, Nancy Lanza, in her home at 36 Yogananda Street, Newtown. However, there is no direct proof of their death: no photographic evidence or video footage was released to confirm the official story that these 28 persons actually died. In fact, no video surveillance footage shows anything—not even Adam shooting out the front plate-glass window or walking through the halls like Rambo, even though this is a school that had updated its security system at the start of the 2012-13 academic year.
The best the authorities could come up with was a heavily redacted report that includes numerous photos of the inside of the school, with a few dings that look like bullet holes, several bullets on the floor, and many black images with white numbers, which we are supposed to associate with dead people. One photo (left) shows the blown-out glass window through which Adam Lanza presumably entered the premises. But how did he get past the furniture, with all his weaponry, without moving anything out of position?
Compounding the situation, the parents were not even allowed to view their children’s bodies to identify them. Instead, they were reportedly shown photographs of the deceased. This was done, according to the Medical Examiner, Wayne Carver, in order to “control the situation.” But what was there about the situation that required “control”? No parent of our acquaintance would have agreed to accept the death of a child without viewing the body. James Tracy has published a discussion of the medical examiner’s performance. According to Carver:
Uh, we did not bring the bodies and the families into contact. We took pictures of them, uhm, of their facial features. We have, uh, uh—it’s easier on the families when you do that. Un, there is, uh, a time and place for the up close and personal in the grieving process, but to accomplish this we thought it would be best to do it this way and, uh, you can sort of, uh … You can control a situation depending on the photographer, and I have very good photographers. Uh, but uh—
Remarkably, the state has done its best to avoid releasing the death certificates and even recordings of the 911 calls. Death certificates were eventually “released” but not to the public or those who might want to investigate the case further, where only a short, general summary was available. According to The New York Times, in relation to the 911 calls, “no children are identified by name, no callers indicate that they can see a child being shot, and the only injury described is that of an educator’s being shot in the foot.”
Moreover, the funerals were all “closed casket,” with one exception—that of Noah Pozner, which supposedly included a private viewing before the public ceremony. As recounted in interviews with the families, the circumstances of their last encounters with their children (or with their caskets) are strange to say the least.
Within the stone walls of the former Chapel Torre Girona in Barcelona, a supercomputer is bleep-blorping its way toward breakthroughs in human genome research, astrophysics, and weather forecasting.
The 19th-Century church building—now deconsecrated—is home to the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. Its star supercomputer, MareNostrum, is encased in a glass box that runs the length of the chapel. Operational since 2005, MareNostrum is a 10,240-core IBM PowerPC computer capable of 63.8 FLOPS—63.8 trillion floating-point operations per second.
